February Rain Barrel Sale & Rebate Information
Extend the rainy season at your home by using rain barrels to capture rainwater and using it to irrigate landscaping in dry periods. You will save both water and money. Even if we are fortunate enough to have rain every few weeks, many of us will need to provide some additional water to our landscapes between the storms. A single inch of rain falling on a 1,000 square-foot roof can produce as much as 623 gallons of water for irrigation. Now that’s worth capturing!
Now is the time to take advantage of rebate programs to install rainwater capture devices like rain barrels during the wet season. You can purchase your rain barrels from any vendor and then obtain rebates of $35 each for up to two (2) rain barrels from www.bewaterwise.com. It would be worth going to the rebate website first to check eligibility before making your purchase.
The City’s water purveyor, Calleguas is sponsoring a rain barrel sale to make it easy for you to pick one up locally.
